Life Extension Astaxanthin with Phospholipids is a potent, highly bioavailable antioxidant that supports the immune and cardiovascular systems. It also helps protect against both inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases, and has been shown to help support cataract prevention and repair muscle damage.
Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble compound. The challenge to deriving maximum benefits is its normally limited absorption – as low as about 50%.1,2 Assimilation of astaxanthin is impeded by limited uptake and intestinal degradation.
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids combines 4 milligrams of natural astaxanthin with a proprietary blend of phospholipids. By incorporating phospholipids, scientific research shows that absorption may be enhanced several-fold.2
Astaxanthin with Phospholipids uses four different phospholipids to facilitate maximum absorption of astaxanthin into the bloodstream, where it is transported to cells throughout the body.
Astaxanthin has been researched extensively. A variety of double-blind, randomized controlled trials along with other clinical research has indicated astaxanthin has positive effects on:3,5
- The immune system
- HDL cholesterol and tryglycerides
- Memory and brain function
- Cataracts, vision and eye strain
- Muscles and physical endurance
- Acid reflux
- Inflammation and pain
- Anti aging
- Male fertility
Other research has shown astaxanthin to slow the growth of breast and skin cancers, prevent plaque buildup in the arteries, protect the heart during a heart attack and reducing oxidation in the brain. It may also support peptic ulcers and protect against kidney damage caused by diabetes.4
